Okay, we’ve all been taught that it’s “the thought that counts” when it comes to gift-giving, but that doesn’t stop us from returning unwanted holiday presents for cash, store credit, or other merchandise. Here are the most-returned holiday gifts, as compiled by MarketTools.
- Clothing, 62 percent
- Toys and games, 16 percent
- Electronics, 14 percent
- Kitchen and bath products, 13 percent
- Cosmetics and beauty products, 10 percent
- Jewelry and watches, 10 percent
I guess the moral of the story here is that it’s just better to give cash or gift cards instead and let the recipient choose their own stuff! I don’t know why that sort of gift-giving is frowned upon….
